The Bright Shiny Thing

Not content with attempting to deal with the evolving situation with Iran or figuring out how to attempt to solve the problem of Afghanistan, not even satisfied to stay in the wholly domestic push for government run and/or further regulated health insurance, President Obama seems to have been caught by his personal siren song to campaign. It seems he simply is not remotely content to be the chief executive. He must be in sales mode.

So the president is traveling to Copenhagen to plug Chicago for the 2016 summer games. He’s taking local politics global. He’s chasing the bright, shiny thing. And it’s a sign that perhaps he’s simply bored and/or frustrated by his job. If that is somewhat true, then the country is in for a long, long three years and four months.
